RSAW present shortlist of 12 Welsh buildings for RIBA Awards

Architects in Wales are getting recognition for their efforts this year, as the Royal Society of Architects in Wales (RSAW), an offshoot of the RIBA, have revealed a shortlist of twelve of the country’s new buildings to be shortlisted for the internationally acclaimed RIBA Awards. This figure is double that of last year when only six projects were considered. The projects include Cardiff’s landmark library in The Hayes (BDP), Welsh Joint Education Committee Headquarters (Capita Percy Thomas), Skypad - Teenage Cancer Trust Unit (Orms Architecture Design) and Hafod Eryi on the summit of Snowdon (Ray Hole Architects).

RSAW’s director, Liz Walder, said: “There are a few reasons why we have so many more entries this year. Part of that is down to us actively going out and promoting the awards, but equally I think it says that there is a lot more great design out there. Members of the public are finding out about architecture through popular television shows like Grand Designs and I think people simply appreciate design more, have more demanding expectations and architects are responding to that.”
